Windows 7: Windows Gadget bar preventing shutdown

Windows Gadget bar preventing shutdown

I have three things running on the Gadget Bar and that is the Weather app, Daemontools app, and TuneUp 2011. The weather app is the one that seems to be holding up the shutdown.

Beyond not using the damn weather app, does anyone know of a fix for this?

I'm using the only one that came with Windoze. The most popular one I found was weatherbug and IIRC back in the day, they used to be shady somewhat.
